Our exploration of the finest Mediterranean harbors continues as we pull into the one port that begs the question: Do you feel lucky?
Well, you’re in Monte Carlo now so the answer is quite obviously, ‘Yes’!
Monaco proves, like diamonds, that the best things truly do come in small packages. Being the second smallest country in the world and yet synonymous with the term jet-set, this tiny principality is a ritzy, glitzy, home and playground of the uber-rich, and a treasure of the Mediterranean not to be missed. When you arrive at the Monte Carlo harbor, docking among your fellow revelers, take a moment to breath in the panoramic lushness. The clean, sculpted lines of the apartments and villas, with their roof top gardens, encircling the the sapphire harbor, seem to be carved and tailored by a fashion designer. The azure sky above adorns this gem by boasting 300 days of sunshine. Here you can explore the exotic gardens, visit the creamy white Prince’s Palace, or take part in the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix.
The Monte Carlo Golf Club is perched atop the island’s peak in case you want to work on your golf stroke while you take in one of the most panoramic views ever.
Hopefully, you will arrive during the Monaco Yacht Show, which for 20 years has drawn visitors from around the world. Or maybe, you came to indulge in the glittering casinos that the island is known for, where you can win or loose a fortune. If lady luck wasn’t with you last night you can soothe your soul at one of the luxe spas, five star restaurants, or art exhibits offered throughout this glamorous destination.
